A loan of $1,525 helped a member to buy more beverage stock and to pay school fees.

Augustina's Dira Group's story

Augustina, age 44, is married with four children. To support her family, she started a small cafe in 1994 and also a small beverage shop in 2007 where she sells soft drinks and alcoholic beverages. She works from 6am to 10pm daily and is able to make a monthly profit of about $210 from her sales.

In the past, Augustina has taken a loan in order to open her beverage shop and to also pay school fees for her children. She now hopes for a new loan for the same purpose. She will share this loan with her subgroup, whose members have cafe, general shop, and stationary businesses. They belong to a loan group whose members guarantee one another in paying back their loans.
